Here are our reading targets:
I can understand the text makes sense to me by checking the meaning of parts I find difficult.
I can understand what I am reading by clarifying the meaning of words and phrases, using my understanding of the text to help me.
I can justify my answers by retrieving evidence from the text.
We are focussing on these terms whenever we read:
Clarify: making sure we ask about words and phrases if we are not sure. We are encouraged try to work out the meaning from the text.
Retrieve: We pick it out directly from the text.
